Volunteer Finds $1,200 Salvador Dalí Wood Engraving
A volunteer at the Hotline Pink Thrift Shop in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, lucked out in a big way when she spotted this piece of art hanging on the wall. The work, which was priced between $10 and $50, was actually an original 1950s woodcut print by the famed surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. Wendy Hawkins, who works at the store twice a week, said, “I saw this, with a bunch of other paintings lined up on the floor, and I said ‘this is old, this is something special.'” It certainly is! With the help of a local gallery owner, the artwork was sold for $1,200.
